CK-12 is excited to announce that in February, we reached 1,000,000 books downloaded!  The downloads include books of all titles and across many different formats: PDF, Kindle, iPad, NOOK and more.  The momentum is definitely building as educational institutions and individual learners search for high-quality and open solutions to their content needs.
New this month!

New content for Kindle, iPad, NOOK and other devices:
  • U.S. History Sourcebook - Basic ePub (readable on iPads and Android devices such as NOOK) has been added to the CK-12 website and will soon be available in the iBookStore.

IMPORTANT TIP: CK-12's Kindle and ePub pages are the most up-to-date sources of our eReader files.  Check out these libraries for titles you may have missed or that may not yet be available in stores.
